Experienced, knowledgeable crew. Close up views of Orca's, gray whales and humpback whale. Obviously some luck involved, but figure a good captain can help make good luck. Highly recommend Stagnaro.

While we were lucky enough to see and following several Grey Whales, we realize you can't count on this every trip. We had a great time, with a helpful and knowledgeable crew. Highly recommended.
